Aiger Akabane, known as Aiga Akaba (赤刃アイガ, Akaba Aiga) in Japan, is the main protagonist of the anime and manga series, Beyblade Burst Turbo. After witnessing the strength of Valt Aoi and his Wonder Valtryek 12 Volcanic, Aiger creates his own Turbo Beyblade, Z Achilles 11 Xtend, and becomes a Blader. He then sets out on a journey to the big city to challenge and defeat Valt; a goal he eventually achieved with the dark power of his Turbo Beyblade. Over the course of his journey, Aiger received two upgrades to his Beyblade: Z Achilles 11 Xtend+, which was destroyed during his battle with Phi in the Dread Tower, and his new, Turbo Beyblade, Turbo Achilles 00 Dimension, which was made after the destruction of Z Achilles' Energy Layer.
A year after defeating Valt and claming the title of World Champion, Aiger returned in Beyblade Burst Rise with his new Gamma Beyblade, Union Achilles Convert Xtend+ Retsu, to take on the top competitors of the Battle Island Tournament to give them a chance of taking his title.
In Beyblade Burst Surge, Aiger returned with the rank of S-Tier #3 with his new Lightning Beyblade, Infinite Achilles Dimension' 1B, as a competitor in the Legend Festival and the Ultimate Tag Series tournaments.
In Beyblade Burst QuadDrive - Episode 04, it was revealed that Aiger lost his title of World Champion to Valt sometime after Surge.

Aiger looks similar to Valt, except he has lighter skin, turquoise eyes, wears red clothing and his hair and eyebrows are maroon. He has a red letter "A" tattooed on his left cheek, and several bandage strips on his face: a horizontal one on his right cheek, two horizontal ones placed vertically on the right temple, and a horizontal one over an "X" shaped bandage on the left temple.
In Turbo, Aiger's attire consists of a white shirt, jet black shorts with blue-buckled suspenders, a short-sleeved burgundy Letterman's jacket with a black-striped white collar, tomato sleeves, border and pocket lining, and burgundy sneakers with a tomato border, white laces, white toe caps and a white circle with an upside-down dark-blue "A" on each inner heel. His jacket has a light-cyan circle with an upside-down dark-blue "A" on the back and three yellow buttons on the front: one on the right side with a dark-blue Beyblade symbol, and two on the left, the upper one an upside-down dark-blue "A", and the bottom a dark-blue star. After his first battle with Valt, Aiger began wearing a dark-blue hand brace on his left hand and wrist.
In Rise, Aiger has grown taller and now wears an orange-yellow shirt with a turquoise zipper, a red Letterman's jacket with long sleeves, white wrist collars and borders with a dark-blue stripe, and retains both the dark-blue upside-down "A" and buttons from his previous jacket, a pair of blue jeans with stitched-in patches, and red sneakers with a yellow border, white laces, and white toe caps. His left hand brace in now colored celestial-blue.
In Surge, Aiger has once again grown taller. He wears a burgundy Letterman's jacket similar to his first one, but with a smooth tomato border, a dark-blue stripe at the bottom, white sections with a dark-blue stripe on the sleeves' shoulder region, a white shirt with a black Beyblade symbol on the front, and he retains his stitched-in patched jeans, celestial-blue hand brace, and red sneakers from Rise.
When Aiger resonates with his Beyblade, his hair turns crimson and breaks free from the blue rubber band holding it upright.
Aiger is a hot-headed blader who cannot stand losing as he was infuriated after his defeat at the hands of Valt Aoi. However, similar to Valt, he has been thoughtful of his strategies and wins battles because of them. He also acts like a big-shot at times, such as when he brags about his victories and so-called "invincibility".
Having lived on a farm for most of his life, Aiger loves animals. He also elects to sleep in a tent in Beigoma Academy's petting zoo, instead of the school's dormitories so he can be closer to the animals.
Aiger also acts like Valt in many ways. They are both passionate about blading, and can easily make friends. (Valt made friends with Rantaro Kiyama; Aiger made friends with Rantaro's brother, Ranjiro)
However in episode 25 in his battle against Free, his personality takes a big turn later in the anime due to Achilles being infected by the dark aura from Phi. Overtime, Aiger's over-reliance on resonance, coupled with his fear of Phi's intention to destroy his Bey, slowly corrupted him. He now does everything it takes to win, including pushing Achilles beyond its limits. During a battle with Valt Aoi, he and Achilles managed to destroy Valt's Wonder Valtryek; thus showing how ruthless and powerful he has become. Additionally, Aiger also became extremely stubborn to the point of refusing to listen to others as shown when he ignored Shu's explanation about him having a "dark resonance".
With the destruction of Z Achilles, Aiger realized his mistake and returned to his old self, to which he took on a much calmer demeanor and is more willing to accept losses. And while he could still be overconfident at times, he has also lost his stubborn streak and is more open to advice from other people.

- Z Defense: By spinning at high speed, Achilles uses its short edges to deflect incoming attacks and returns damage.
- Z Whip: With its Xtend Performance Tip set to the Lower Mode, Achilles hits the opponent's Bey head on, using its long sword like edge to slash across the opponent's Energy Layer, similar to Valt Aoi’s Wonder Whip.

- Unison Breaker: Similar to Z Breaker and Turbo Breaker, this move consists of Achilles crashing into the opposing bey and scoring a Burst Finish.
- Unison Launch: Like Z Launch and Turbo Launch, Achilles gains even more speed and power than before by using the slope of the Beystadium to unleash a barrage of attacks.
- Unison Dive: Like Z Dive and Turbo Dive, Achilles uses the stadium wall to fly into the air, then falls back down increasing its speed and power to deliver a massive attack.
- Unison Shield: Like Turbo Shield, Achilles uses its balance mode along with its wavering spin (usually achieved by hitting the wall) to use the shield on its layer as a focus point for the center of gravity to block the attack.

- Unison Whip: Like Z Whip and Turbo Whip, Union Achilles uses its swords/wings to slash the opposing Bey, dealing massive damage.

Naru is Aiger’s little sister and is very supportive of him. She also helped him make Z Achilles 11 Xtend.
The spirit inside Achilles encourages Aiger to battles and become the strongest blader.
Aiger and Ranjiro seem to get well along with each other. At first, Ranjiro decided to teach Aiger a lesson after the latter had defeated all the members of the Wild Bey Gang; but after the two had a Beybattle where they tied 149 times, the two came to respect one another. Since then, Ranjiro had begun supporting Aiger in his matches, and at one point he even returned his Bey to him after the Wild Bey Gang Bladers had stolen it. Later on, Ranjiro became concerned about Aiger when the latter started developing an obsession with winning due to his corrupted resonance. He began watching over Aiger at Fubuki's insistence, even accompanying him on his journey to Dread Tower.
In Beyblade Burst Surge, Aiger's thrilled to see Ranjiro again and wants to battle him. After learning about his shoulder injury and Glide Ragnaruk getting destroyed, Aiger is shown upset and vows to defeat Lain and avenge Ranjiro.
Aiger strives to become a Blader strong enough to defeat Valt one day after witnessing the immense power and strength of his new Wonder Valtryek 12 Volcanic. Valt is very supportive of Aiger, and always encourages him to keep getting stronger whenever the two meet. The two are also very similar in terms of personality. When Aiger's resonance became corrupt, Valt takes notice of this and vows to save him just like he did for his friend Shu Kurenai. In addition to this, Valt seems to harbor no resentment towards Aiger for destroying his Beyblade. He also felt sorry for Aiger upon finding him grieving over his shattered Z Achilles. In the Chouzetsu manga, Valt takes the place of Phi and use Turbo Valtryek to destroyed Z Achilles off of resentment towards Aiger for destroying his Beyblade and freeing him from Phi's corruption.
Later on, Phi began destroying Beys, including those of Free and Shu. When Valt attempted to challenge him to avenge his friends, Aiger insisted that he battle Phi instead. Seeing Aiger's strong determination, Valt conceded. Valt watched Aiger's final battle with Phi and was happy when he finally defeated him. And when the two battled each other for the World Champion title, Aiger emerged victorious, and Valt was proud of him for having beaten him.
In Beyblade Burst Rise, Aiger and Valt remained friends despite the past; they also supported and cheer on team Victories throughout the rest of the match. In the aftermath, he and Valt both challenged team Victories to a beybattle as an award.
Fubuki initially did not get along with Aiger due to his dislike of the latter's arrogance and cockiness. Over time, however, the two grew to respect one another and later developed a friendly rivalry. Fubuki was one of the first to notice Aiger's corrupted resonance and asked Ranjiro to keep an eye on the former.
Lui at first didn't care for Aiger at first and said that he didn't deserve to wield a Turbo Bey, but it eventually grew on him because of how motivated he is to battle Valt. Aiger eventually secured Lui's respect after defeating him at the end of the Luinor Cup.
Toko and Nika Aoi met Aiger Akabane when he was transferred to Beigoma Academy, they found out that Aiger was a blader and they all became friends, the two often help him out before matches just like they did with their brother Valt and showed no hate towards Aiger after his Z Achilles shattered Valt's Wonder Valtryek.
Aiger and Xavier met on the Battleship Cruise when Xavier defeated both Laban and Hae-Jin. Aiger took interest in him and battled. Although Xavier still came out on top, Breaker Xcalius bursts just as Xavier is about to pick it up. He then announces that Aiger is his rival, and ever since they have been trying to top each other any time they encountered. Xavier also helped Aiger with his Turbo-Awakening and he is also seen watching Aiger's matches.
Laban and Aiger have also been rivals, again, though the Battleship Cruise. In their first encounter, Laban beats Aiger and Suoh simultaneously with a Burst Finish. Their second encounter was in the tag team battle; Aiger was with Fubuki, Laban was with Hae-jin. Aiger wins against him after being Burst by Fubuki and this would be their last face-off on the cruise. But although they don't face-off for a while, Phi breaks Laban's Vise Leopard which makes Aiger scared that the same will happen to Achilles, so he starts ignoring his friends and starts having a corrupted resonance. (More in Phi's section) But after all that, Laban is another one of the people who helped Aiger master his Turbo-Awakening and he is also seen watching Aiger's matches.
Phi took an interest in Aiger during the Luinor Cup. After the latter managed to defeat Lui, Phi challenged Aiger to a battle immediately afterwards, which he effortlessly won. Since then, Phi began watching over Aiger, waiting for when he would become an opponent worthy to destroy. During the last few rounds of the Battleship Cruise, Aiger witnessed Phi break Laban's Vise Leopard. Fearing that Phi would do the same thing to Achilles, Aiger began pushing both himself and his Bey beyond their limits to prevent this from happening. However, this also led to Aiger becoming obsessed with winning at all costs, and ignoring his peers' concerns for him. In addition, his resonance became corrupted as well, causing him to break Wonder Valtryek. Ironically, Phi broke the corrupted resonance that he created in Aiger. Later in Episode 50 of Turbo, they meet again in a burst-only match and Aiger turns out the victor, beating him for a second time.
Free originally stumbled upon Aiger in the forest and battles him after the latter challenged Free. Free was also the first one to notice Aiger's corrupt resonance.
When he first met Dante, he sparks a rivalry during the Battle Island Tournament. After he defeated Dante, he started a friendship with Dante. When Dragon was destroyed, he cheers up Dante by reminding him what Beyblade is really all about. He also appeared alongside with Valt to support and cheer for team Victories. After Dante won, he and Valt challenged Dante to a battle royale.
- "Take it back, I'm not a monkey!" - to Valt after he called him a monkey.
- "I REFUSE TO LOSE TO YOU!"
- "Good to know, but you won't be saying that once my Z Achilles blows you away" - to Ranjiro Kiyama
- "A frilly what, now?" - When the frill-necked lizard was discovered
- ”Where’d you get your bey? Siberia?” - to Kyle about his bey"
- "I will become stronger. I'll do whatever it takes." - after picking up his Z Achilles.
- "Are you saying that there's no bond between me and Achilles?!" - to Shu Kurenai.
- "I never stopped hearing Achilles' voice...I just wasn't listening." - when mourning over his shattered Beyblade.
- "Achilles was destroyed because of me."- blaming himself after Z Achilles breaks
- "He's not swallowing me up, I won't let him!"
- "Our bonds that we made.... will not be destroyed, ever!"
- "Ah man! This guy's a riot!' - about Dante Koryu in Beyblade Burst Rise - Episode 13.
- "It's about time! I've been looking forward to this, now I'm gonna blow you away!" - to Dante in Beyblade Burst Rise - Episode 13.
- "What’s going on? Where'd all that energy from earlier go?!" - to Dante when he thought that Dante lost his momentum during their battle
